Restaurant Liability in Brooklyn | What You Need to Know

While most people do not expect to sustain a serious injury while simply grabbing a bite to eat, this can happen to anyone. Please continue reading and speak with our Brooklyn personal injury lawyer to learn more about restaurant liability and how our firm can assist you if you’ve been wrongfully injured in a restaurant accident. Here are some of the questions you may have regarding the legal process ahead:

How is restaurant liability defined?

Essentially, restaurant ownership and staff are responsible for ensuring they provide a safe environment for their diners, and when they fail to do so and someone is hurt as a result, they will most likely be considered liable for the individual’s accident. Some of the most common causes of restaurant accidents are as follows:

  • Food poisoning
  • Burns
  • Inadequate security
  • Dangerous stairwells
  • Slip and falls
  • Dim or poor lighting

What should I do if I am hurt in a restaurant in Brooklyn?

If you are hurt in a restaurant, you should notify the restaurant owner and call the police to the scene of the accident, especially if you are badly injured and require an ambulance. You should then carefully photograph the unsafe restaurant conditions that caused your accident and ensure that you obtain the contact information of anyone who witnessed your accident, as they may corroborate your personal injury claim at a later date. From here, you should ensure that you seek immediate medical attention and ask your treating physician for any medical documentation or bills relating to your injury. Finally, after you are treated, you should hire an experienced Brooklyn personal injury lawyer who can work to gather and present all additional evidence required to prove your personal injury claim.

How long will I have to file a personal injury claim in NYC?

The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New York is three years. This means you cannot wait longer than three years from the date of your accident to pursue financial compensation. If you do, you will most likely lose your right to sue. Additionally, it is always best to bring your claim sooner, rather than later, for the longer you wait, the harder it will be to prove your claim. We are ready to assist you today.
